Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian made her television hosting debut alongside TV veteran Mario Lopez on this week’s live shows on “The X Factor USA”. Her first night on the show, she wore the above outfit, which elicited a vulgar response from the show’s head judge Simon Cowell.
He referred to her wardrobe malfunction when he said that the air conditioning must’ve been on full blast. The issue is being referred to as “nipplegate”, which you can obviously see what Simon was referring to.
The show was originally slated to air on Thursday, November 1st, but was moved up to air on October 31st instead. She revealed backstage, “We moved the show up because of the hurricane, so my stuff that was being sent was stuck on the East Coast.”
She went on to say, “That top [arrived from the East Coast] first thing.”
Reportedly the entire fiasco, along with Simon’s comments were all staged just for the ratings on the show. We bet that Simon was concerned that his new hosts wouldn’t fare well? Khloe said, “The shirt was lined and everything! I’m surprised that much showed! When I went on, Simon was like motioning to me to cover up, and I was like, ‘What’s he doing?’”
She added, “In hindsight, I just thought maybe I was just a little nipply, but apparently from what everyone says, you saw a lot more than just that! During a commercial break, I was able to put band aids on!”
After the show, Simon offered up his opinions on nipplegate. He said, “I thought it was hilarious. Your first live show, you don’t wear a bra, and the studio’s freezing, of course.”
